Transcript of Alan Turing
What he's know for.
Interview Brady's Notes
We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done
The Time Machine
His Biggest Accomplishment
Alan: King's College, University of Cambridge. This is where I excelled in Mathematics. When I graduated I earned a fellowship with the school and stayed there to study more. Brady: At that time, war was raging, can you tell me about that? Alan: Well I had first figured that out when I took a sightseeing trip to Germany.
Alan and I easily related and enjoyed talking. He had an enjoyable childhood no doubt, but his life gets even more interesting later on.
Alan: I had planned to build a machine, one that would change the future. World War 2 had been raging on and the Government Code and Cypher School moved to a secret location known as Bletchley Park. As it seemed ordinary but it was the location of a code breaking nerve center during the war and my home for the next few years. The German military used ciphers for communication and they used a variety, but the hardest to crack was called the Enigma. Alan: We had to break the ciphers, but the Germans added all new functions to the Enigma, making it have a trillion different code combinations so it was impossible to break.
Brady: Alan Turing was a brilliant mind that was interested in the human brain and he was planning to create a machine
a brain. It was going to be called the "universal machine", something today, you might know of as a computer.
Brady: So how did you break the Nazi code? Alan: Well, they used common words to decipher messages and a phrase they routinley used was "The Weather Forcast For Today" which was how they made their mistake. Brady: That was amazing! You cracked the code! Did you tell anyone!? Everone!? Alan: Well, no. We had to keep it secret.

On a sunny August Morning
What he's known for.
His Biggest Accomplishment
Scientist Alan Turing was seemingly impossibly interviewed one morning. Even though he had died he was able to be interviewed when amazing scientist Brady Menapace had finished his time machine. Many questions have been asked and all have been reported to The Biography Times. Brady: Alan, to start it off I want to ask, why do you think you really stood out above the other kids when you were young? Alan: I'm not sure, I suppose it was in my nature. Everyone's unique. Brady: Well said, now, I heard, to get to your boarding school as a child, you took a two day bike ride. Alan: Yes that is true, everyone, except me, considered it a big deal. I only made a simple calculation. Brady: Now, can you tell me about your parents? Alan: My parents met on a ship going from India to England. My fathers work made my parents travel a lot while me and my brother would stay in boarding school.
Brady: I figured out that Alan was able to teach himslef to read three weeks before he started school.
Brady: Now Alan, can you tell me about your friend Christopher Morcom when you were at Shelborne? Alan: Oh, well, Chris was a good friend of mine who got me interested in astronomy. Unfoutunatley, he died of drinking infected milk. Brady: Were you good in school? Alan: I suppose so, some teachers had issues because I chose what subjects I wanted to study. Bady: Well, what did you enjoy studying? Alan: Math and schence. I was intrugued by the human brain. Brady: Where did you go to school after Shelborne?
Alan: The war had ended on May 8th 1945. Alan: Me and a friend had been working on a project called the Delilah Project. It's purpose had been to create a secure mode of voice communication, although we were not the first to come up with this, the Vocoder (voice encoder) by Bell Labratories worked put had more of a robotic voice instead of a nice, clear voice which is what we were working on. Unfourtunatley due to some errors, the Delilah Project proved useless unless you were close to each other, and so a years worth of work had gone to waste. It was the shape of a suitcase which could be handy though. Alan: Due to a certain legal problem a few years after the war I was brought to court. And eventually.... I died. How? I will tell you. I died on June 7th, 1954. I was found by my housekeeper lying peacefully on my bed with a patially eaten apple on my nightstand. Yes, I ate a poison apple. The apple had cyanide poison on it. Was it suicide? Was it an accident? I cannot, and will not say. Brady: ...... I guess that's all the time I have left for anyway... Thank you very much for your cooperation. Alan: No. no, thank you.
Brady: I watched, puzzled as he walked back to his own time period. I closed the portal and that was that. I wonder if I will ever see him again?
, maybe not. He's got machines to build.
